Abstract

The fundamental study of additional silicone impression material has been performed by comparing the other import products. In order to estimate the possibility of usage of the impression material developed in this study, the several techniques such as IR, EDX, DSC, TGA, rubber rheometer, and contact angle measurement were used. According to the results, there were not any product satisfying all properties required in the impression material. The impression material developed in this study showed best mechanical properties among the all impression materials. However. the wetting property should be studied more by an introduction of a hydrophilic surfactant or modification of a base polymer.
